Actor. Writer. Teaching Artist. Activist.
Welcome! I'm Tyharra, but I'm mostly known as Ty. I'm an actress, writer, activist, teacher, and operations assistant currently residing in Portland, Oregon. Originally, I'm from New Jersey, by way of Florida, graduating from The Florida State University (Go Noles!) with a Bachelors of Art in Theatre. After graduating, I moved to Portland, Oregon to attend Portland Actors Conservatory.
My body of work has range! I started my career performing Nikki in Red Door Project's Hands Up: 7 Playwrights, 7 Testaments, a show that has been touring for the last 5 years within the Pacific Northwest, touching on the feelings and well-being of black people within a culture of institutional profiling. Recently, you've might of seen me in Vanport Mosaic's Soul'd or Portland Playhouse/Confrontation Theatre's Pipeline.
You might have also seen me at Oregon Children's Theatre teaching a Saturday morning class, organizing safe protests with many different organizations within the Portland metro area, or giving a tour of one of Portland's premier Class A mixed-use office spaces. All this to say, I wear many hats! For more information regarding my work, please see my resumes here.
The world is an incredibly interesting place filled with multifaceted people. As I'm one of those multifaceted people, it's only right that my website reflect that. Below, you won't only find information regarding my work, but links to community resources that I hope you find helpful. Let's work together to make the world a more enjoyable and safe space for all.
